HR & Employee Benefits Summit in Virtual Event,
April 27, 2020


Employee Experience: Is Your Company Living Up to Expectations?
Panelists include
Marina Musi, HR Manager, SquareSpace
Philip Bennett, Customer Service Operations Manager, Empire-Today
Sarah O'Melia, Instructional Designer, Serco
Stacy Leger, Talent Acquisition Manager, May Institute
Moderated by Melissa Morse, BLR

When we think of “employee experience (EX),” the number of years a worker has with a specific skillset comes to mind, but that’s not the case. In today’s candidate-driven market, EX refers to the experience you are offering employees that work at your company. By offering employees a favorable experience, you’re more likely to retain your top performers longer. But how do you go about offering a terrific EX? In this panel discussion, your leadership peers will cover the ways in which their company successfully implements a good EX and offer strategies for you to take home and try out at your organization.


Low to No-Cost Perks and Benefits that Retain Top Talent
Moderated by Stacy Leger, Talent Acquisition Manager, May Institute

Benefits and perks are a great way to attract and retain talent, but you don’t have to break the bank in order to stand out as an employer of choice. Telecommuting, flexible schedules, and offering employees the chance to volunteer are all low-cost benefit ideas that appeal to workers of all ages. What types of low-cost perks are you currently offering? Learn what types of perks and benefits your peers are offering when you attend this roundtable discussion.

Creating a Workplace That Supports Mental Health
Moderated by Katia Antonova, Manager, ARK Behavioral Health

According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, 44.7 million U.S. adults aged 18 or older reported a mental illness in 2016, and these numbers are continuously rising. Yet the stigma surrounding mental health in the workplace continues to be problematic. In order to help workers, employers must be conscious of these issues and offer support to impacted employees. Learn what strategies your peers are using to help workers with mental illnesses when you attend this roundtable session.

How to Improve Performance Management Through Training
Moderated by Erica Brown, Head of Talent Management, Transamerica

It can be time-consuming, cumbersome, and loathed by many. That’s right, we’re talking about the dreaded performance review. But it doesn’t have to be that way! Training is a valuable way to keep workers on track, year-round, so when review season arrives, your workers won’t be surprised. But how should you go about training your workers on what is expected of them all year long? Share ideas and strategies for improving the performance review process with your peers in this roundtable session.
